Hacker/anarchist/sailor Moxie Marlinspike's documentary walks us through the history of scrappy folks who have built boats before him, back hundreds of years and then whisks us back to the present, where he is part of building the "Pestilence" on the coast of Florida. Their ragged crew of four get it ready to be ocean-faring and then hold through the Bahamas and up to Dominican Republic, faring surprise storms, deadly turns around cruise ships, fishing, and dropping their anchors manually by swimming them out.
